Grammar & Listening
illustrating the difference between the present perfect and the past simple
get the students to work on their receptive skills and practice some listening for gist and listening for deatils
Procedure (35-43 minutes)
To lead-in I'm going to display a picture of two gladiators, then I will ask the Ss, Are they fighting because they want to, or because they are forced to fight? Do they fight only humans or animals as well? Why they do that? Where does the fight takes place? While eliciting their answers I will write the vocabulary on the board. I will ask the Ss to get in pairs and discuss if they agree or disagree with this type of fights?
at this phase, I will display a photo on power point and ask the students to listen to a conversation between two friends. so for them to listen for gist, I will ask them answer the following question: what is the link between the conversation and this picture here on the board? when the recording is done, I will ask them to check their answers in pairs after that I will try to get a WC feedback
Here, I will show the class a handout which requires a re-listening to the recording but this time for specific information. While you listen complete the sentences with the correct name. I should ask some ICQs to make sure that everyone understands the task well. Are going to just listen? Or listen and complete the sentences with the correct name? When recording is over, I will ask them to check their answers in pairs. After that I will ask the students to raise their hands to give their answers, I will write the correct answers on the board.
Here, there is no need for a hand out I will simply display the task on whiteboard. I will ask the students to discuss the following questions in pairs. 1- do you know any one who would enjoy a gladiator course? 2- What other ways can you think of to increase your self-confident? After the discussion I will get a maximum of 2 answers and then move on to the next stage
